View Full Version : Almond flour help!
10-19-2008, 12:48 PM
I want to make a recipe that calls for almond flour. I know that almond flour is the dehydrated pulp from almond milk that is then ground. I don't have any and, even though I could make some, I don't want to wait that long because I want to make this recipe today!
Can I grind up almonds to make flour? If so, how do I prevent it from becoming almond butter?
Any advice or substitution ideas?

if you have vitamix or blendtech just give themsome wuick pulses ( that's what I do), other wise put them in food processor and grind them there, they might not get as fine as in the vita mix. but some times it is quite yummi to have a more coarse structure

Almond flour I think is just ground up almonds, I don't think it has to be pulp first.

Thank you! So I can use the dry container on my vitamix. I was worried I would goop something up and didn't know wet or dry, etc.
Goobygirl...I read about using the dehydrated almond pulp as flour in Raw Food Real World. I haven't really seen it referenced elsewhere. I do think it's a great use of the pulp (hate to waste anything), but wanted to be sure I could grind almonds as an alternate and not make butter.
